Systemic Refocusing Strategy

An Emancipatory Approach to Intervention, Part 2
  • Peter Dudley
  • John Hassall


Systemic Refocusing Strategy (Dudley and Hassall, 1995) is applied to problems of Group Scheduling Systems (GSS) within three types of organisation. In this application SRS is used as a probe to illuminate factors relating to cultural perspectives, managerial objectives and rationales and technological possibilities available. Some generic managerial perspectives and rationales emerge and some observations are made upon the ability to co-ordinate technological capabilities with the organisation’s ability to implement them. A generalised framework for evaluating the current normative GSS technology and its application is attempted.
